What are Implant-supported Dentures?



Implant-supported dentures

Your dentist might suggest implant-supported dentures if you have numerous missing teeth. Dentures supported by implants are anchored to your jawbone rather than conventional dentures, which lie on top of your gums and are prone to slipping.

Dentures that look natural but don't slip


A type of overdenture that replaces numerous teeth simultaneously is an implant-supported denture. We suggest implant-supported dentures if you've lost the majority of your teeth. Minimum of two dental implants are required to support your overdenture. However, for the best outcome, we frequently suggest minimum of (4) Implants an Arch.

Attachments that connect the implants are positioned beneath the denture. The denture fits upon the dental implants when it is placed in the mouth, keeping it steady and secure. With implant-supported dentures, you'll be able to eat a wider variety of foods than you would with regular dentures.

Eligibility for implant supported dentures


You must have enough bone density of Bone for the treatment in order to be a candidate for implant-supported dentures. To support your dental implants, however, we might advise a bone graft. Before we suggest dental surgery, you must also have healthy gums and a strong immune system.

Procedure


A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is used to secure a crown. We'll proceed with placing the implants in your jaw if you have enough bone density. If not, a bone graft will require its own operation.


Dental implants will osseointegrate with your jaw during the following few months. We will monitor your development during this period to make sure you're recuperating properly.


We'll add snap in attachments to the Denture once you've recovered fully from dental implant surgery. Your implant-supported dentures will have an acrylic base to mimic your gums, just like traditional dentures. Several of our patients value how implant-supported dentures seem and feel like natural teeth.



After-care


Treat your implant-supported dentures by brushing them with a soft bristle toothbrush, removing and rinsing them, and your mouth after meals. You can clean the denture because it is detachable. Before going to bed, take out your implant-supported dentures and soak them in a glass of water. When your dentures aren't in your mouth, this will prevent them from drying out and cracking.
